    Since your directions say "Revise..." I figured your first correction for #3 was correct. So now you have two correct versions of #3 to choose from!

    "to whom" = what kind of phrase? (for #8)

  • Grammar (Writeacher) -

    8. I wasn't the one to who he called out.

  • Grammar (Writeacher) -

    "to whom" is correct because in this sentence "to" is a preposition. What is "whom" then?

  • Grammar (Writeacher) -

    An object of preposition?
